S.E.X. Review~ Don't Stake My Life On It~ Bailey Bradford

Stakes, kilts and holy water—Andrew Meyer is in for the time of his life!

Radney’s tired of being the coven oddball. He had his reasons for being the way he was, and he let those reasons rule his life for centuries. Another mistake—almost harming a human he’d been sent to keep an eye on—has sent Radney on a mission of self-improvement. He’s going to conquer his issues and be the best damned vamp ever!


Andrew Meyers has the term paper from hell to write. It needs to be original and intriguing. What could be more so than people with a vampire fetish?

But when that fetish turns out to be one he has, for a very sexy, kilt-wearing, neurotic vampire, the tables are turned. Andrew isn’t prepared to find out that vampires are real, but he learns it anyway. With help from his twin brother, Erin, he just might be able to find a happy ending—or an ecstatic beginning—for him and his hot as hell red-headed vamp. If he’s careful, and patient, he might even find the vamp for him.

Don’t Stake My Life On It~ Bailey Bradford’s second book in The Vamp for Me series~ a very different and unique version of the vampire world. The vamps in this series are humorous, egotistical and entitled, with little regard to how they treat humans. This by no means is a dark series; instead it displays one of humor and satire.

Radney, human-scaring vamp from book one gets his very own human and story in Don’t Stake My Life On It. Afraid of feeding from humans, Radney relies on Paolo to supply him with bagged blood~ (no spoilers, but there’s a reason he’s frightened). Radney was larger than life and a gregarious character.

Ms. Bradford allowed Radney’s dry sense of humor to guide her writing and his antics had me chuckling as I pictured the ginger-headed vamp playing tricks and telling inappropriate jokes.

Andrew, on the other hand was portrayed as a quiet individual who took a back seat to his extroverted twin brother, yet when he met Radney, Andrew instantly transformed into a man possessed. The possession he desired was Radney and he wouldn’t take no for an answer.

The chemistry between Radney and Andrew was instantaneous and their drive to be together precarious. Between the dark hunters, Erin (Andrew’s twin brother) and the other vampires, one would think Radney and Andrew didn’t stand a chance.

Bailey Bradford always takes a different and fascinating approach to her writing, never fitting a mold, and taking the reader on a new adventure. Don’t Stake My Life On It fit that bill. Although the book delivered and HEA, there is no mating between the vampire and the human~ of which I hope will eventually occur.

The sex is scorching and the dialogue witty. A series that shouldn’t be missed, Don’t Stake My Life On It is worth the read.
